Passing Through: Merry Go Round

Tania Huerta

2003, 01:00 minutes, Colour, English


This work is part of a single channel video series called Passing Through.

This video was shot in a merry go round at a mall in Montreal. I shot myself by mounting the camera on a tripod and holding it against my stomach so that it is slightly above me.

A lot of my video is done in a single take, with very little, if any, editing. Each video in this series was recorded in a single take. The single take approach allows me to be both an uninterrupted observer and observee in my work, and enables me to directly confront questions around identity, identification, and display both in a personal and public way.

The entire series is available as a continuous presentation, uninterrupted by credits, upon request.
